Hard times are hard for everyone.
It’s how you choose to react to those hard times that makes the difference.
“It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.”
You need to choose to look for options. It’s a choice.
Don’t wait for someone else to help you. Analyse, learn and then lay your options on paper.
As you put it on paper, you give them a tangible form. It’s the first step to resolve the hard times you’re in.
Then, choose to take action on one of the options you found.
There’s no guaranty that you will succeed with your action.
But you’ll surely fail if you do nothing.
Are you a follower? Do you like others to choose for you?
Sometimes, it’s ok to follow. Most of the time it’s when you want to learn something that you can only learn following someone who can show it to you.
In reality, most will keep following because it feels safe.
Being safe following is an illusion. Letting someone else choose for you will never be all that you want. I can bring some good things, but it will never be all you want. In the end, you’ll always find disappointment.
“Each of you, as an individual, must pick your own goals. Listen to others, but do not become a blind follower.”
– Thurgood Marshall
Someone determine to reach for their dreams will only follow to learn.
“Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.”
– Og Mandino
Follower think that they don’t face the responsibility for their failure. They live in the illusion of someone else being responsible. It’s an illusion, we’re responsible of everything we take action on. Even if it’s after someone else request or order.
No one can take the responsibility for your action.
If you want success, you have to learn from your failure.
“Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor.”
– Truman Capote
Smile facing failure. You’re at the school of success.
Always do your best.
Learn from what didn’t worked.
And keep going on.
Success is not a destination, it’s a journey.
Sometimes, you have to face failure. When you can’t try one more time. When you reach the limit of what you can do, use the experience to do better in your next project.
Failure is not fatal.
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
– Winston Churchill
Don’t let a fail become a stopping sign into your life. Stand up and go on.
“You never fail until you stop trying.”
– Albert Einstein
